My Mother

 

Let me tell you about my mom....
She is such a strong, loving, kind, tell it like it is, woman.
She is a  nurturer,  so very smart, funny, sweet, and always supportive.
She will ask the tough questions, but with love.
She is creative, sparkly, and her smile lights up a room.
She is a nurse, a singer,  a cook, a farmer.
She is elegant, and regal, who isn't afraid to get dirty.
She is sassy, but  gentle, she loves deeply and fiercely.
She is a world traveler, a historian, a family story teller.
She is  a wife, a daughter, a sister but most of all she is my mom.
